                     https://photomath.net/

 With PhotoMath on your smartphone, you can scan math problems
 and get instant results -- along with detailed
 step-by-step instructions.

 This free app appeared here three years ago, when it first
 debuted. Graphing capabilities have recently rolled out in a
 major version release, which also upgrades
 PhotoMath's interface.

 Freely download PhotoMath for Android or iOS devices from the
 Google Play or iTunes stores; respectively,

           https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?
                   id=com.microblink.photomath

     https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photomath/id919087726

                     GEOGEBRA APPS, REVISED

      https://blog.geogebra.org/2017/09/new-geogebra-apps/

 Geogebra also released new versions of its free apps.

 In addition to interface improvements and an exam mode that
 turns your device into an test-compliant graphing calculator,
 Monday's updates add critical points for functions, plus exact
 and numeric "solve" buttons. Check out the web version here:

                https://www.geogebra.org/graphing

 Then freely download the graphing calculator app for iOS or
 Android from the iTunes or Google Play stores; respectively,

                https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/
            geogebra-graphing-calculator/id1146717204

               https://play.google.com/store/apps/
                 details?id=org.geogebra.android

 For the geometry app, the latest version includes construction
 steps with text descriptions. Take the web version for a
 spin here:

                https://www.geogebra.org/geometry

 Then freely download the geometry app for iOS or Android from
 the iTunes or Google Play stores; respectively,

 https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/geogebra-geometry/id1232591335

               https://play.google.com/store/apps/
             details?id=org.geogebra.android.geometry

 Geogebra's .ggb files will still work in all their apps and on
 all your devices; and their existing math app will continue to
 be available as "GeoGebra Classic."
